Managing this dynamic roster of exclusive artists, the studio proudly announces Annie Henley as its new Executive Integrated Producer. Annie Henley's qualification for this unique role is derived from her experience as both an Integrated Art Producer and as well as Photographic Agent.

The photographic artists in residence at afterhrs. are:

  • Jason Al Taan (he/his) Jason Omar Al Taan began his career as assistant and apprentice to legendary fashion photographer David Lachapelle.

Currently based in New York, Eli has executed imaginative and surreal fashion campaigns for clients like Nike, The WNBA, RCA Records, Facebook, Coach, Microsoft, SSENSE, Footlocker, British Vogue, Vanity Fair, I-D, FADER, and Nylon.
  • Ryan Schude (he/his) Blending influences from cinema, literature, and street photography, Ryan’s productions often focus around a single, wide image of a distinct location, telling stories of multiple characters in a single frame.
  • Noa Griffel (she/hers) Noa’s work is a collision of technical skill and other-world-ism that is as beautiful as it can be offhand. Light and color are her preferred vehicles. Clients include Estee Lauder, Youtube, Conde Nast, DKNY, Vogue, and Michael Kors.
  • Chessa Subbiondo (she/hers) Through her thoughtful composition and her ability to elicit candid moments, Chessa creates narratives that escape the confines of staged photography, inviting viewers to connect with humanity and a spirited perspective. Clients include Highsnobiety, Interview Magazine, Office Magazine, SIXTEEN Journal, KingKong Magazine, Vogue Italia, KENZO, Levi's, Coach, and Balmain.
  • Tyler Ash (he/his) Tyler Ash is a Los Angeles-based photographer specializing in fashion and beauty, often collaborating with his wife, Amanda, on styling for various clients including FentyXPuma, Dior, GQ, ON and Purple Brand. 
  • Lian Benoit (she/hers) Montreal-born photographer and creative, her work is rooted in empathy, intuition and the need for authentic representation. She believes in the female gaze as a form of activism and self-actualization. Her background in branding, acquired through years in creative agencies like TUX, Sid Lee, and K72, provides her with a holistic understanding of each project and a desire to create with purpose.
  • Kai Regan (he/his) A cofounder of afterhrs, Kai has worked at the intersection of art and commerce as a photographer and DGA director for top fortune 500 brands and the most contemporary culture brands. He brings a unique perspective on culture in his work with elevated execution and relationships in casting, styling and in tasteful, unique executions for integrated photography and video campaigns.
  • Camila Cornelsen (she/hers) Camila Cornelsen is a Brazilian director, photographer, and cinematographer. She grew up influenced by her dad, a photographer, and by her mom, a producer. Effortless and energetic movement punctuates campaigns for the likes of APPLE, Google, Instagram, PUMA, AVON, VOGUE, Netflix, and Nike.

Like many of the photographers in the afterhrs. photo division, Annie’s journey in the advertising industry is as inspiring as it is unorthodox. Starting from her early days as a model, where she collaborated with the industry’s top photographers, Annie's passion for visual storytelling led her into photo production and laying the foundation from being in front of the camera to crafting the process and final product.

Now, as she spearheads into the role of Executive Integrated Producer at afterhrs. Annie is poised to take on new challenges and drive innovation in the ever-changing world of advertising. With her keen eye for talent and strategic mindset, she is committed to supporting artists and pushing the boundaries of the conventional.
